Cosmoscow Art Fair
14 September 2022 – 17 September 2022

In 2022 at the 10th Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair the сцена/szena gallery presented two boothes.

At the main one, the gallery showed works by Kirill Garshin from the "Bestiary" series. The artist's new cycle illustrates rare or endangered animal species. The artist's new cycle illustrates rare, unusual or endangered animal species. References to iconographic elements play a special role in their composition, while the titles of the works are reminiscent of fables. The materials used by the artist are mostly organic, which makes it possible to compare painting with the fragility of all living things.

In the section “Created in Moscow”, the сцена/szena gallery, with the support of the Agency of Creative Industries, presented series "Kissing Inferno" and "Cruel Optumism" by Olya Avstreyh. 

The “Cruel Optimism” series, which includes the “Kissing Inferno” cycle, is a project about deceitful feelings, false promises, and avoidance of a serious relationship with reality. The artist is trying to find a way to overcome frustration through sensual images, extreme intimacy, and closeness.
